Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) is an international quality assessment and improvement program for outpatient hematology-oncology practices. Its goal is to create a culture of self-examination and improvement.
Several of Dana-Farber's
satellite centers achieved QOPI Certification status in 2013 and the main
Dana-Farber Longwood campus achieved certification in 2014.
QOPI's measurement of care processes are evidence and consensus-based. They are reassessed and updated every six months by the QOPI Steering Committee, composed of a team of practicing community and academic oncologists, nurses, methodologists, and staff. There are currently over 100 process measures, including:
- Documentation of care
- Chemotherapy planning and administration
- Pain assessment and control
- Breast cancer management
- Colorectal cancer management
- Gynecologic malignancy management
- Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma management
- Non-small cell lung cancer management
- Care at the end of life
- Symptom/toxicity management
